The ordinary scientific man is strictly a sentimentalist. He is a sentimentalist in this essential sense, that he is soaked and swept away by mere associations.
Gilbert K. Chesterton

'Strictly Sinatra' became a compromise between me and the producers, and neither of us liked the results much.
My roles in comedies from 'Austin Powers' to 'Tommy Boy' to 'Wayne's World,' were sort of comedic 'straight man' parts. My character on 'Parks & Recreation' is the comic relief in a comedy. To play a character that appears strictly for laughs is sort of new for me and really fun.
Fame is very corrosive and you have to guard very strictly against it.
In each of my characters there is a little of me. Not strictly autobiographical but a little piece of my soul.
